Millican Forever

Last week I had the pleasure of capturing Claire and Jared’s wedding.  They got married at their church, Faith Bible in Spokane.  Claire and Jared decided they wanted to have a first look (the only way to do it in my opinion!) and then do all their formal portraits prior to the ceremony.  We were wanting to do something fun and different for their pictures, but still close by to the church.  We decided to head up the Garland district and look for some shade- with a wedding party totalling 26 people, we needed a large space.  I found that space at the Garland Theater.  They were gracious enough to allow us to use their parking lot and side of their building.  It was absolutely perfect, especially since it was close to 100 degrees while we were out doing the photos and we were at least able to stay in the shade!

Claire was determined to make their sanctuary feel totally different than a typical wedding at the church.  I think she succeeded!  It was gorgeous and not like any other church wedding I’ve ever seen.  From the tulle and lights suspended from the ceiling, to the branch arch way, and the all the soft candles it all created the most romantic ambiance!

After their ceremony I snuck away with the Bride, Groom, and Maid of Honor to steal away a few moments and capture some gorgeous post wedding ceremony portraits.  They were a stunning contrast to the urban style portraits we got prior to the ceremony.  It is such a fun thing to be able to steal these moments and have another quiet, peaceful moment for the Bride and Groom.

I was so excited when Jenn told me that for her Mom’s birthday she wanted to have pictures done of her daughter and 2 nephews.  Like most Mom’s/Grandma’s their wish list when it comes to birthdays, Christmas, and such isn’t very long and the one thing that she really wanted were some professional photos of her Grandbabies.  We met up a little tucked away park on the north side of Spokane a few weeks ago to finally capture those memories.  Grandma had just a few special requests- a picture of all 3 together and one of their feet.  As a bonus, we were able to snag a picture of Jenn and her 2 brothers, plus all the grandbabies- score!

Now, is definitely the time to be thinking about setting up a date for your session to have plenty of time and good weather to get your portraits done as Christmas gifts!  Don’t wait until weeks, days before Christmas to suddenly stress about what to get your Mom, Dad/Grandparents!  Wall portraits make an amazing gift!  Mention this post and save 10% off your prints.

Hello Beautiful!

Who is ready for another Class of 2014 Senior?  It is Kyra’s turn up on the blog!  Kyra was all about her clothes!  I love when seniors come with a ton of clothing options and Kyra definitely didn’t disappoint.  She came with a great assortment of dresses, shorts, jeans and all kinds of tops, plus some killer shoes!  For her session she wanted to use the “pretty” parts of downtown, so we headed into Browne’s Addition to get us started.  I have recently fallen in love with shooting there.  There is such a great variety of spots- alleyways, brick walls, flowers, benches…  From there we went into downtown a little bit further and explored a new spot for me.  Lastly we headed back to my outdoor studio- aka the field and worked with “my light”- the soft hazy light that night was amazing.  Kyra opted to do a second mini session on a separate night so she could go both straight and curly with her hair for her pictures.  The second night we shot her with her car, a bit more around my outdoor studio, and then headed to the basketball court.

Without further ado- here is Kyra from Davenport High school, another one of my senior models.  Go Lady Gorillas!

Sweet, Spicey, and Saucey

Yep, that about sums Jia up!  Here is another one of my full of personality girls!  The attitude, giggles, fun and joy were what this girl from China is all about.  Jia was adopted from China just 5-6 years ago and brought to Spokane by her amazing adopted Mom, Anne.  I can’t imagine this vivacious girl living in China.  I’m so glad she has made her way to Spokane where she has found a home, friends, and is going to be graduating from Shadle High School next year.

For Jia’s session we headed downtown to another one of my favorite spots.  I love this little courtyard that opens up to the alleyways that are classic urban Spokane.  Next we made our way into Riverfront park- the iconic Spokane bridges and river make an amazing backdrop.  As you can see we had a lot of fun!  Don’t ever feel like your senior pictures have to be stuffy, rigid, or basic.  Don’t settle for anything less than capturing who you are!

Make Way for the Class of 2014

Can I just say that I’m LOVING the Class of 2014?!  I’ve been so busy shooting and editing all these amazing senior sessions that I haven’t had a chance to share them all with you here.  So far I’ve visited downtown- the nitty gritty grungy side and the beautiful side as well- the creek, the field, the basketball court, the junkyard, my “Romantic” spot, the river, the park, and the studio.  We’ve shot with cars, volleyballs, chalkboards, shoes, basketballs, bass guitars, and lots and lots of beautiful clothes!  I love how each session has been totally unique and full of personality.

Speaking of personality…..

Meet Sierra, member of the Class of 2014 from Reardan High School!  If there is one word I would use to describe Sierra it would definitely be personality! Don’t believe me… take a look-

Sierra is one of my senior models and this is the 3rd time we’ve had the privilege of working together.  But, this time is special…. this is Sierra’s senior session!  This session is all about her and documenting who she is.  We started out in downtown for a more industrial look, but ended up finding this little tucked away garden spot too.  I love it when that happens.  From there we headed out to one my creek spots.  This spot is great- creek, bridge, trees, so may options in one spot.  To finish off her session we headed back to my outdoor studio space- aka the field.  There we focused on her sports and pulled out a few fun little props- a chalkboard, a bunch of shoes, and of course a volleyball and softball.
